Forrester’s IT Forum EMEA 2010 in Lisbon, Portugal, is finally here! We’re expecting about 500 people on-site and I can tell you that the content we’ve developed with Forrester analysts and our great roster of invited speakers is even better than years past. We’ve been talking about Business Technology (BT) transformation for a while now, but this year you made it clear that the time for theory is over and you want to know how to make it real.

Today, you’ll hear from George Colony, our CEO, followed by keynotes from Peter Hambling, CIO at Lloyds of London, who will tell us why BT is essential to Lloyds in the fast-moving world of risk management and insurance. Alex Cullen, Research Director serving Enterprise Architecture professionals, will help bridge the gap between business and IT using business capability maps, and Ted Schadler, Vice President and Principal Analyst serving Information & Knowledge Management professionals, will talk about leveraging empowered customers and employees to drive business success. He will be joined by two special guests, Michiel Boreel, CTO at Sogeti, and Fernando Summers Gil, Head of Knowledge Management Innovation at BPVA.

If you can’t attend, be sure to check out the highlights of the speeches and the Twitter stream below.
